I am a high school history teacher with professional publishing and writing experience.

My love of history came to life when I began studying archaeology in college. What before had seemed dry historical facts evolved into the relevant, vivid history of humanity when I learned to contextualize and appreciate history as an earlier chapter in the world as I know it today. As a current, credentialed high school history teacher, with a master's degree in Middle Eastern studies from Tel Aviv University in Israel, and a summa cum laude bachelor's degree in classical civilizations and minors in archaeology and theology from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, I specialize in world and U.S. history to accompany my thorough knowledge of ancient and Middle Eastern history.

I am passionate about the beautiful complexity of the English language. Having worked for two years as a production editor, one year as co-editor of the Women's Voices Now monthly publication, and three years as a freelance proofreader and copy editor, I am well learned in English grammar, style, punctuation, and usage.

My goal for each tutoring session is to keep the student engaged by connecting history back to the student. Understanding how we today are affected by events of the past is key to not only learning history but also appreciating the present. I frequently review and give pop quizzes to keep information fresh, and require the student to engage with the material to solidify and assess learning. I try to be flexible with time, so I offer make-up tutoring sessions if the student cancels at least 24 hours prior to our scheduled session. I offer tutoring sessions at the student's home or at the Simi Valley Public Library.
